A new show-and retail space was created for the WIENER ESSIG BRAUEREI Gegenbauer (Gegenbauer Vinegar Brewery). The starting point for the design was the idea of a shelf that fills the entire room. Working places, wardrobes, cash-desk area or information niches are integrated into the shelf.


Foldable levels offer the possibility to enlarge the space. 

Detached from a material terminology the project becomes a search for places and relations in a coordinate system.


The added value is part of the integrated opportunities.



The framework in this context is a symbiosis between space and possibility, a structure of possible spatial manifestations. 

The workplace is part of a superior idea of space in which we enter coincidentally- surrounded by references and visual relations to the products.
